I'm really hoping to avoid testing him with standard achievement tests. I don't mind portfolio type evaluations.
Should I homeschool him officially or homeschool him under an umbrella school? And can the umbrella school be located anywhere in the nation? Do I have to let the public school district or the ESD know he is doing a private school if I do that? Also, any non-invasive umbrella recommendations if I go that route?
He could also probably fit under the IEP category (so no testing could be required) or get a privately developed plan as per Oregon law.
Wayyyyyy too much that I don't know about here. Advice? Direction? Also I'm not sure if I should consider seeing if the school would be willing to provide some special Ed services still (the law seems to indicate they should if they can but don't really have to).
